Turkeys on Parade

Thanksgiving is all about eating.
Turkeys bronzed in butter.
green beans cozied in cream.
sweet potatoes burnished
with brown sugar, pecans
pressed into service. And don't
forget the pumpkin pies
punctuated with dollops
of whipped topping squirted
from a chilled can, It's as though
the replication of plenty
somehow translates
into gratitude, blessing
is measured in heaping bowls.
